"Stepford Wifes" what is that?. Everyone mentioned that before I moved to DB. Been in DB just over a year now and love it. Everyone friendly and helpfull. Easy to make friends. It feels like you are living on a resort though. so not everyones cup of tea, but we like it. We have 2 kids and a big dog so perfect for us.
Also I didnt want to live in a high rise apt with a lift. I live in a low rise close to the beach, also have a nice terrace for BBQ's and our rent is quite reasonable too. If ya need any help, contact me. Im also a Londoner (Cockney). Good Luck!

I actually haven't seen "stepford Wives" but have heard it banted around before. I think 'cause of the golf carts.

In 'Stepford Wives', the men make their wives into robots who are always dressed perfectly, who are perfectly slim and who do everything they are told!!!!
Am pretty sure you might find the odd Stepford wife in DB but there are also plenty of us who are nowhere near anything like a Stepford Wife!
It is a bit of an idyllic community and quite resortlike but in my opinion it beats living in the crowded, congested, polluted city anyday!

We're considering these DB schools. We have now a 1.5 yr old daughter and another one on the way... Any parent's first hand experience with these schools (K-12 or whatever the upper limit is)? (teachers, philosophy, parent involvement, competitiveness of students...) The waitlist sounds quite intimidating? Does that mean I have to apply now for my 1.5 yr old for Kindergarten??
jane01, can you elaborate on why you like DBIS so much?
Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
